Tom Turkey Nuggets Recipe

Tom Turkey Nuggets

Your young turkey-lovers can help mix up the batter for these sizzling, tasty nuggets, but frying them is a job for parents only.


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 lbs. cooked white turkey meat, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Dipping sauce (ketchup, barbecue sauce, honey mustard or duck sauce)


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the water and egg yolk. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until smooth, then refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer; alternatively, you can heat 2 inches of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Dip the turkey chunks into the batter and fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until golden. Drain on a paper towel and serve with your choice of dipping sauce. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
